It may be quite rare but as technology progresses once in a while the industry comes up with some pretty amazing devices which in a way rewrite what we know about things. Something like that for example happened when SSDs finally reached the consumer market around 5 years ago (enterprise class MLC SSDs have been around since 2002) and also when FullHD (1080p) compatible media like the HD-DVD by Toshiba and Blu-Ray by SONY were released offering unprecedented image and audio quality. Well todays review may not be for something as important as the above but it revolves around the latest Simraceway SRW-S1 controller by SteelSeries, one of the most innovative and advanced devices i have used in a long time.
From day one, SteelSeries has been focused on making professional gaming gear that provide meaningful benefits to gamers of all skill-level, with the most demanding being those gamers whose lively hood depends on the performance of our products. We believe, as most gamers do, in winning, not trying! What originally began as a small two-person operation in Copenhagen back in 2001 has become a global leader in professional gaming products. SteelSeries recognized the need for superior, high-quality professional gaming gear that would give players a competitive edge. Fast-forward to today, and we've come a long way since our first glass mousepad. We have global offices in North America, Europe, and Asia, providing an integrated portfolio of products designed specifically for gaming. Fueling our growth is you, the gamer!
The very first time i saw one of the preview pictures of the Simraceway SRW-S1 i thought it was a steady controller like the X-65F by Saitek which works by utilizing pressure sensors and so the stick doesn't even move an inch. That was that and so i never gave it a second thought until the moment i started using it which is when things became really strange since it actually took me a few seconds to figure out that the Simraceway SRW-S1 works with motion sensors (accelerometers) and not pressure ones (it's written all over the box but i never pay much attention). Now since I’m not a console fan and I’ve never played Wii, Xbox360 or even Playstation 3 i can't say i know much about motion controllers but i did enjoy using the Simraceway SRW-S1 and at the end of this review you may want to as well.
